You will need to get four years bachelor’s degree in engineering. If you can get a spot on an automotive program, there is nothing like it. However, if that option is not available, then choose subjects that are closest to the field. Mechanical engineering may just do the trick for you in such a situation.

Once you have completed your degree, you will need to take an exam to be able to become an engineer in training or an EIT. You will be required to fulfill certain experience requirements before you can take an exam for a Professional Engineer license, also known as PE. Generally it requires four years of experience in most states.

This will help you in getting a better placement in the automotive industry once you get your license. The more effort you will put in, the better results you will get. It’s up to you to grow through the ranks in the industry by the way of hard work.
